RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

Today my mom tried to call the cops on me

I seem to post everyday, but I feel people need to know.

Today I refused to go to school and laid in my bed. My mom tried to prod at me and to talk me into just going but that didn't work. She finally tried to use fear tactics by saying, "I'm going to call the school and two men will come in here and drag you out if you don't just go with me." I remembered on the "Speaking of Coffee" post someone said, in a nutshell, to not give into that.

Since I knew that I definitely won't be tased out of bed, and I'm not planning on being violent, I'm not giving in. I let her call the school after she gave the "Okay. Last chance. I'll count to 3." thing and I closed my eyes and rolled over.

After 10-15 minutes she comes back in and tells me that the school "can only use force after 10 days." So 1) I won for the day and 2) I got to stay home and sleep.

Side Note
She told me that they said for every day over 10 days, I get my eligibility for a driver's license pushed back 6 MONTHS per day. If I were a normal person I would rant about the 6 month thing but no, why would they push back your driver's license at all? "Missing a day of compulsory public school makes you 6 months dumber, so you can't drive." [Image: seriously-meme.jpg?w=100] Meanwhile, I've driven my dad's car around the neighborhood and parked it on the side of the road a few times and I feel like I'm a decent driver for 2 years underage.

RE: Today my mom tried to call the cops on me

Trust me this society is full of stupid and fail(Looking at it with logic just makes the pain worst). I know what I'm going to say is gonna sound like bs but trust me that family is nothing more than a title now and the happy smiling families you see on tv are all bullshit to make people believe that still exists. My mom called the police on me when I was younger and now I learned that family is infallible like everybody else and you can like or love them but you have to know when to keep a small distance from them somewhere inside you so they can't manipulate you.

Sorry for what happened.

RE: Today my mom tried to call the cops on me

My mom called the cops on my stepbrother once for not going to school. And that drivers license thing is incredibly stupid...further proof that school is for brainwashing, why else would you need to go every single day unless there's a serious emergency?

No, this is Patrick.

Thanks for the medal. I'll be sure to have it in my signature. I'm unschooling or homeschooling my kids from the start, but I'm not sure which one. I'll have to look into that.

RE: Today my mom tried to call the cops on me

Ha yay I have been sigged again!

Either one is better than forcing them to go to school. If they decide they want to try it let them, but always allow them the freedom to choose. That is what I am doing.

Unschooling from the start but giving them freedom of choice.

Any parent that threatens to have someone else come punish their own fuckin kid (especially the police) is a piece of shit, I'm sorry.

It's absolutely okay. The woman also hit me in the face with a 1/4 full Voss water bottle as hard as she could and gave me a bruised eye (not black, but colored) I wish I could live at my father's house but he's even more strict about school.

RE: Today my mom tried to call the cops on me

It's not a nice feeling when the cops stand before your door. Luckily, my mom never knew I was home at that day.
It seems normal these days that parents betray you. You sir, have proven your point. It is something not many can do. Therefor, you have gained my respect.

I don't think they put any crap logic behind that one, it's just to show you that school can make you their bitch.

YOU WIN 1000 INTERNETS. Seriously, way to be the man. My parents flip the fuck out when I used to skip too. Now I'm eighteen and don't give a fuck, but I know that feel. They never threatened to call the cops though. Mostly because my dad would beat my ass and drag me to school by him damn self when I was younger and weaker.
